NEW PEACE NOTE
Wilson Dispatches Second Mes
sage to Belligerents Ex
plaining the First.
LANSING NOT SAYING WORD
Berlin, Dec. 30.n-(Via London.)
It has been learned that a few days
ago President Wilson sent a second
peace note explanatory of the first
to the central powers and the entente
nations. This note has not been pre
The reason for the withholding of
the aeeond note is said to be that
the German reply, received in the
interim, showed that the German
government had not been influenced
by the "misconceptions regarding the
purposes and aims of President Wil
sons step which an unfriendly press
in both camps attributed thereto."
Lansing Is Not Talking.
Washington, D. C. Dec. 30. Sec
retary Lansing refused to comment on
the report that a second explanatory
note had been sent, both to the cen
tral powers and the entente allies,
to correct misinterpretations of the
president's note calling for peace
terms. He indicated that under the
recent policy of silence adopted by
President Wilson and himself he
would make no statement either af
firming or denying such reports. It
is felt that much misunderstanding
might arise in the popular mind, but
it is held that the various govern
ments addressed would be influenced
only by the official information, which
will be quite complete.
Secretory Lansing refused to indi
cate whether he thought the Berlin re
port might have arisen out of the
sending abroad of the information to
American diplomats of his two state
ments authorized the day the note
He has been most emphatic ever
since his two statements were issued
in saying that the president's note
was absolutely self-explanatory and
required no further comment He has
stated also that no special instructions
were sent the American diplomats as
to the manner of presenting tae note.
Intimations that the misunderstand
ings abroad, particularly in the pub
be mind, might be dispelled by offi
cial statements from here, have met
with 'an unfavorable reception.
Denmark's Reply In.
Washington, Dec 30. Denmark's
reply to President Wilson's peace
proposals was received today by the
State department. It agrees with that
